We booked the tour for the 14th of August 2020. They picked us up at the camp at 5 am. They drove us into the desert at a flat location. They inflated the balloon with big fans. Captain Khalid was so professional. He inspected the ropes, gas tanks, hookes, wind direction, to insure our safety. He told us that he is the only Jordanian who is internationally certified to be a balloon captain. He has been doing it for so many years and obviously it was so obvious that it was his pation. We went up to 3000 feet. We circled above Wadi Rum. The views were breath taking. You could see the red mountains, rock formation for miles. It is the best way to see Wadi Rum. You definitely will feel how magestic this place is. We were airborne for over 1.5 hours. Time flew by so quickly as it was so enjoyable. I will recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Wadi Rum

I organized this experience as a surprise for my husband and our three adult children. We went in the beginning of September 2019. The communication with Mr. Khaled Shishani was all the time very fluent. The organization was perfect. We had never been in a hot ballon before and the experience suprised us: it dosn't feel scary at all. Very peacful and amazing feeling floating in the air. I can highly recommend Mr. Khaled Shishani and his team. True professionals. In the early morning it was a bit windy so we were not sure if it would work out, but they checked and re-checked the weather conditions and waited before they finally decided to make the trip. All in all a really wonderful and amazing experience. Thank you so much!!!

Doing this was the best decision during our holidays! Khaled and his team are really experienced and friendly people. The whole time we felt safe and sound. I was a bit afraid because of the height - but I was too amazed by the colours and the view, so I forgot it. Seeing the sun going up over Wadi Rum and enjoying the silence in the hot air ballon (as long as Khaled is not firing it :) ) was such and amazing and magical experience. All my life I will think of that! It was really not cheap but worth every single penny. This is an absolute must do. Everything worked well: the booking, answering my questions and the pick up from our camp.

We've never been on a hot air balloon before and it has exceeded our expectations. We witnessed the most beautiful sunrise flying over Wadi Rum. Mr. Khaled is extremely professional, we felt completely safe at all times. It was definitely worth getting up so early for!
